Hampshire Police have charged a 32-year-old woman after two paramedics were threatened with a knife as they were detained against their will for around 20 minutes in a property in Gosport.
Officers were called to Tudor Close at around 17:50 hours on Sunday 13th September after control room staff at South Central Ambulance Service became aware that one of their crews was being held at knifepoint.
The paramedics had responded to the address after they received an emergency call by someone who was requesting urgent medical help.
But after paramedics arrived at the scene, they were held in the property at knifepoint. Nobody was injured during the incident, and a female was arrested shortly after the arrival of the police.
Kylie Mancell of Tudor Close was charged with common assault of an emergency worker and false imprisonment.
